Had a great stay, really big room, really clean, the bathroom is also big with a great shower and bath.
I arrived with my partner between 10.30pm and 11pm and I was met by a smiling and friendly Deirdre at the front desk. It was late and I was famished so I decided to ask if it was possible to get something to eat. Deirdre immediately answered that she would check with the kitchen and would a couple of sandwiches fill the gap until morning. I was in the bar having a drink when the sandwiches duly arrived. Was I ever so happy to see a couple of sandwiches. The room was lovely, clean & airy. At breakfast the following morning there was an excellent mix of cereals, breads & fruit yoghurts. The waitress was friendly and attentive. I ordered a full Irish Breakfast and it arrived promptly, having been cooked to perfection. The grounds and hotel were kept in very good condition and we really enjoyed our short stay. Will definitely be back when visiting Athlone again.
We stayed here for 1 night. Lovely hotel, very reasonable rate. Rooms were lovely and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Very enjoyable stay friendly staff and great location, only a short walk to the river.
The wife & I love, love loved the Shamrock.
LOCATION = Perfect. The first stay was for two days right after landing at Dublin (we're from California) after 3 whirlwind days in the south of England. The idea was to spend two days catching our breath within easy walking distance of downtown while being away from the bustle. The Shamrock is literally a few minutes from Sean's Pub, the Shannon river and the rest Athlone has to offer.
THE FACILITY = Excellent. I guess if your tastes run more to say, The Sheraton or Radisson you might find a minor thing or two to quibble over, but we found The Shamrock Lodge to be clean, well maintained and very nice. Add to this
-- the attractiveness of the grounds (abundant grass, trees, shrubs)
-- ample open-air parking (no underground concrete trap here)
-- upscale dinning hall and authentic pub with food service (Food better than good)
-- spotless rooms with tasteful decor AND vigorous shower/water pressure (unlike much of Ireland)
-- good quality internet service, both wired (in the room) and wireless throughout the grounds
THE STAFF = Excellent. Helpful without being intrusive
-- in the rooms (at least the rooms we stay in, the windows open more than a crack, even on ground floor
-- It's QUIET here, more like a stay in the country
-- Athlone is delightful for a good sized town, and as everyone will tell you "It's in the center of Ireland"
We enjoyed our stay enough to adjust our plans and, three weeks later spend our last two days in Ireland at The Shamrock - the second stay only confirmed our first experience.
Check in was effortless. The room was clean and comfortable if a bit tired and dated. I couldn't use the over bath shower as I have a problem with mobility, if I had been staying longer I would have asked about a walk in shower.
The bar staff were very pleasant. I was very disappointed with the choice and quality of breakfast, but I suppose this was reflected in the price. We had a problem with the TV and two of the lights didn't work, we did check if the switches worked
Large hotel, nice but showing its age. Bar food OK only. Good location within walking distance to downtown and driving distance to historic attractions.
REALY ENJOYED MY STAY RELAXING PLACE , FOOD WAS JUST TOO GOOD. ALL STAFF FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. HOPE TO RETURN.
Enjoyed our two day break. Hotel was comfortable and unexpectedly good value.
Would stay again.

Had a beautiful stay at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel a few nights ago. The place itself is lovely and the room was amazing for a really good price. I rate this the full 5 stars as I really believe it deserves it. The staff at reception were lovely and gave us all the information we needed to know. I was recommended this Hotel and I will definitely be recommending this to my friends. Thank you very much,

We stayed in the apartment for 2 nights in April. The suite is spacious and clean, with two toilets, one shower and bathroom . The suite overlooks the backyard, which is a beautiful green area. The nights were quiet and calm, good sleep quality. Place is charming and cozy, and with a modern edge. :-) I would definitely stay here again!
I liked this place because:
- staff is charming and polite, helpful and smiling
- room is clean and spacious
- breakfast is great, :-) You can also choose from a many of warm dishes for breakfast,
- a ten minute walk to Athlon castle
- beds were very comfortable, I slept very well
-Cattle, fridge, microwave , TV, coffee and tee, were in the apartment
I will most likely stay at this hotel. :-)
Thank you for nice place.
Hotel clean and tidy, stayed for two nights. Quiet and peaceful, breakfast not much to shout about but bar food was lovely. Staff nice, young barman the nicest of all. Would return.
I stayed at the Shamrock Lodge for one night for a friend's wedding. The Hotel was very easy to find with plenty parking. The hotel was very good value.I would stay again.
I stayed 2 nights in Shamrock Lodge for a friend's wedding. The staff and food at the wedding were great. It was a little disappointing that people stayed in the lobby and bar for the wedding band, which took from the atmosphere. The apartments were ideal for a group of friends. The hotel was great value and perfect location for walking into town. Would definetely stay again.
We enjoyed our recent stay at the hotel and were made very welcome and comfortable. Indeed our family has a long connection with the Shamrock Lodge, going back many years.
Two things to mention (constructively!). We have come to expect availability of complimentary wifi on our travels and, secondly, we were disappointed when we could not see a programme on UTV.
Very relaxing; there was no disturbances the night I stayed so I had a very peaceful sleep. Loved the shower the following morning; the large shower head drenches you in warm water; really nice. Breakfast was good and the staff are friendly. I was there mid week on business and strongly recommend the hotel for someone who wants to relax after a days work and recharge the batteries for the following day.
Food was delicious had a mouthwatering burger in the bar and the choice was huge for breakfast didn't know where to start. Pleasant surprise. Thanks
Shamrock Lodge is a lovely hotel. We were there for a family reunion, there were 2 other large events in the hotel, and they were able to keep them all as individual events. It never felt crowded or too noisy. The food was lovely and the room quiet and comfortable. I would recommend the hotel and be happy to stay there again.
Stayed for a 2 night stay excellent hotel fab rooms gorg food in both bar and restaurant, also staff couldn't be nicer to us and the kids, overall a great hotel and defo be back. Davina Farrell Ardee

We had booked a 2 bedroom apartment which exceeded expectations. The hotel is set in beautiful quiet grounds and is relaxed and friendly. Staff are so accommodating and willing to help. Rooms are clean and very well appointed, comfortable with everything one could want. Breakfast was excellent. I would definitely recommend the Shamrcok Lodge to say and the apartments are a dream for friends and family.
Great location just a 5 minute walk from the town centre and river Shannon. Lovely grounds and contemporary decor inside the hotel. Staff were very friendly and extremely accomodating, rooms were clean, contemporary and spacious. Food for both breakfast and dinner was excellent and well presented. Delighted with our stay here. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a nice break away.

My Mother and I had a lovely stay at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel recently.
I would recommend it to my friends. Lovely rooms. Lovely food. All in all, a great place to stay.
Excellent staff gorgeous room, bar food especially the steak was the nicest I've tasted! Breakfast was run brilliantly and there was loads to choose from! My second time staying here and I will definitely be back!
Excellent. Room was excellent and family friendly. Staff were excellent and food was excellent. No complaints whatsoever. Have stayed there before and will do again in the future.
Found staff friendly,and room warm and spacious p
Just returned from having a lovely stay at this hotel.
Staff all very kind and Deidre on reception went out of her way to help with suggestions on places to eat and drink.
The hotel is in a great location for a visit to Athlone, as it is only a five minute walk to the centre. A thumbs up to all the staff in the hotel, you feel welcomed from check in to check out, nothing is too much trouble. The hotel itself is lovely, the rooms are spacious, every area is spotless, the beds are comfortable. The breakfast is more that adequate to set you up for the day.
We had a lovely time and would have no problem recommending this hotel to friends and family. Thank you to all the staff for making this a memorable stay for all the right reasons.
We booked this last minute and got a really good deal. The staff were very friendly, the room was clean and the bar serves an excellent pint of guinness! No hesitation recommending this hotel and we will be back because Athlone is one of those places that for us never really came on the radar but is very friendly and welcoming and the Shamrock lodge is perfectly placed to explore the town etc. Thanks.
Excellent hotel really enjoyed our stay.
Deidre on reception most knowledgeable and helpful.
Comfort at bargain price
We stayed here one night paying only 52 euro (a bargain considering the level of the structure: huge and spotless room, with a small lounge inside, coffee facilities and very spacious bathroom).
Staff a bit chilly, but We have to say that we arrived late at night just during the shift change between the two receptionists.
Definitely stay there again.
Have a great time food was great room was lovely and staff are very nice i give it a 5***** rate
Does what it say's on the box. Economical, Good clean comfortable quiet rooms, helpful staff in general, good parking only a short walk from town, 5 mins from main roads. We went for the D,B&B package over 3 nights, dinner OK, breakfast huge, Restaurant depressing, dull light no windows, balanced by cheerful helpful staff. We'd stay again for sure.
Stay here whenever I visit family in Athlone, very nice hotel, very comfortable and clean.
Very friendly staff also. very good rates too which helps
I would recommend your hotel to anyone I know visiting Athlone
Very friendly, helpful staff. Comfortable rooms and good food. Enjoyed our stay.
A great hotel only a short walk from bars and restaurants. Reasonably priced with friendly, helpful staff. I always choose the Lodge when I stay in Athlone.
First time in Athlone stay in hotel was wonderful, pleasant staff and price for 2 nights was excellent,
.Will be back soon.
